In 1961, Lee Iacocca, vice president and general manager of the Ford Motor Company, had a vision. He imagined a car that would seat four people, have bucket seats, a floor mounted shifter, be no more than 180 inches long, weigh less than 2,500 pounds, and sell for less than $2,500.00. His dream became a reality when the Ford Mustang was born. The first generation Mustang was launched in April 1964 with Ford running three advertising campaigns on all three major TV channels across America at the same time. On the first day the car became available, Ford sold 22,000 Mustangs and by the end of the year, nearly half a million Mustangs had found new homes. A range of engines, body styles and extras ensured that the Mustang had a very broad appeal. In 1965 the 'Mustang GT' was introduced and featured five dial instruments, thicker roll bars, quick ratio steering, dual exhausts that exited through the rear valance, dual mounted fog lights in the grille, and special lower body side stripes. Another popular option was the 'Rally Pac' which added a tachometer and a clock. To this day, the GT models are the most desirable and sought-after of all the Mustangs.
On offer here is a great example of a 1966 Mustang GT. It's a left-hand drive, 4.7-litre, automatic Convertible that we believe originates from Kansas. It obviously spent some time in the dry climate of Austin, Texas as our vendor has a hand-written service book from there with dates and costs. It's a genuine GT and is delightfully finished in Sahara Beige with a Pony Parchment interior and a Cream soft top. Our vendor imported the car a few years ago and claims that during his tenure that he has “never taken it out in the wet”. Certainly, the underside of the car looks in good shape and according to our vendor “the coachwork and paintwork are very good, as are the interior and electrics, the chrome is excellent” and the engine and transmission are described as “solid”.  The odometer currently indicates 92,000 miles and the car will be freshly MOT'd prior to the sale.
1966 Mustang GT Convertibles are rare in the UK, particularly in this lovely condition and this classic piece of Americana, with its light and crisp colour combination, would be welcome anywhere this Summer.
